Bill and Lynne kept very tight control over releases - the word "open" didn't really apply to 386BSD, and there were many Open Source projects well under way before 386BSD was even conceived. Under Linux, the process was a lot more "open", even democratic. One of the reasons I abandoned 386BSD early on and started working on Linux was because I (as well as many others) were very frustrated at the complete contol the Jolitz's exercised over 386BSD, and limited releases to one every six months - much slower than was generally considered to be acceptable for the long list of bugs and fixes in the pipeline.
